Firstly, I want to say that this is the most wonderful site, second only to Friends Reunited. Secondly, I wanted to beg that you put the "Trying To Find" section in alphabetical order, rather than the most recent entry being first. I only ask this because although I am a regular visitor to both sites, I was not here at the beginning, and so have not managed to keep up with all the entries you have obviously received. Surely if you have it as alphabetical, people would find it easier to call up a surname, than to have to go through lots of entries which have been listed by the date they enquired. I also think that you should consider possibly cross referencing this same section with a "BY AREA/COUNTY/TOWN" Although people may be happy to troll through lists of "WHO'S TRYING TO FIND" section, personally it would be more helpful for me to be able to enquire by TOWN also. For example; if I saw that somebody was trying to trace someone within the Braintree, Essex or associated areas, I would be quite happy to partake any knowledge, even if it was as simple as forwarding a page from the local directory, or making local enquiries on their behalf. Please consider this idea.
